Hearty Welcome to the launching of “www.shadopwplayindia.com” a dedicated website on the Business of Entertainment and other issues.
When a film is launched, the muhurat shot happens to be just a formal affair. But this launching is an event in itself, the rebirth of my baby in the electronic form. It is but natural that it has to be an event to be remembered for its future omen. The opening issue, therefore, has to be like an opening shot of a film, with substance, sentiments and meaning with a purpose, may be a nostalgia. So, what more apt the opening shot can be than the editor’s encounters with the intellectual, strategically strong and individualistic mother of an acknowledged super star of the millennium Amitabh Bachchan? Perhaps these nostalgia may give you a deep insight into the caring stature of the mother, no less a legend in her own way, who shaped, nurtured and allowed to grow the persona, charisma and super talent of a phenomenon nick named by media as BIG B.
It is said that there is always a woman behind a successful man. True. But when the successful man is only one of his kind, then there have to be two women behind him. Super star Big B, had that advantage of having awesome twosome behind his success: First his mother late Teji Bachchan and later his better half Jaya Bachchan.
Here is my tribute to that great soul Teji Harivanshrai Bachchan.
